Astrology (introduction)

Astrology is the study of stars with the macrocosm as mirror for the microcosm. It is not an exact, empirical science, but an art a science that uses the universe and solar system as metaphorical map of the self with archetypes of the subconscious. The study of astrology is necessary to understand the logic behind the script of modern entertainment-news of the media industry and Hollywood film industry. Movies with movie stars represent the movements in the stars.  Occultists study the natal chart of a person and define the ascendant, descendant, medium coely and dominant constellations and planets. The 3 slow planets Uranus, Pluto and Neptune determine a generation. The relations between different planets form geometric figures.

The cardinal signs in astrology are the 4 signs Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn (the goat), a modality that represents active, dynamic, male, initiatory, red, fire energy (principle of sulfur). The modalities cardinal -fixed -mutable represent rise-peak-fall, youth-adulthood -old age, 3 degrees of masonry. The cardinal signs represent 4 seasons spring, summer, fall, winter, cardinal directions west, east, north, south and cardinal virtues.  Cardo: hinges, the cardinal signs were always seen as hinges of a door, as dimensional portals (fi astrological calendar Stonehenge).

Astrology was studied by the Sumerians, Hindu's, Egyptians, Babylonians, Greeks in conjunction with mathematics and philosophy. The alchemists studied astrology to study the cycles of nature and time certain rituals of sacrifice on specific dates on specific locations.

The Mayans used astrological events like eclipses for sacrifice rituals. The Babylonians worshiped the moon (Sin) and Lilith as Queen of Night. The jews learned astrology in Babylon and wrote the Bible with astrological symbolism (12 signs=>12 Tribes of Israel) .

The priest class of elite families adapted their religion to the astrological ages, fi Christianity in the Age of Pisces. The Silver and Golden Gate were seen as dimensional portals.

In 200 Claudius Ptolemy wrote the Almagest. The Ptolemean Egyptians made the Dendera Zodiac with the Ram, Taurus, Capricorn,..

Dominican Albertus Magnus wrote Speculum Astronomiae to defend astrology as Christian. Guido Bonatti was advisor of Holy Roman Emperor Frederick II Hohenstaufen. Hermeticist and astrologer Marsilio Ficino published Plato's Theology. The Cecils used John Dee as astrologer. Dominican Giordano Bruno, astrologers Johannes Kepler and Galileo Galilei promoted the Copernican model.

Isaac Newton introduced the mechanical model of the universe (concept of God as watchmaker). Theosophist Franz Hartmann published Alchemy and Astrology. Eric Jan Hanussen was a mentor of Adolf Hitler.

While astrology is still used by the elite (William was born on a solar eclipse on summer solstice, Catherine on a lunar eclipse, Diana= goddess of the moon), a watered down form of popular astrology is promoted in the New Age Church and agents of the Science Church (Richard Dawkins, Bill Nye) debunk astrology through focusing on generic newspaper horoscopes (pseudo-astrology). Like DNA and nationality, astrological birth chart is an influence but not 100% determining.

Astrologers use knowledge of astrological cycles to predict the future (like forecasting weather or social behavior with modern technology with Big Data, Raytheon's parallel computing) based on cause and effect and to plan rituals on certain dates with astrological logic and meaning. Elite families are called 'houses' (House of Rothschild etc) like the zodiac signs.

The influence of the sun (force of life and light) and moon (tides of the oceans, menstruation cycle) is undeniable. The sun also provides spiritual energy (the worship of Jesus Christ is based on the worship of the yearly reborn sun) because the sun and the human soul are linked (the heart is a stargate). Saturn is its opposite, the coldest planet with a hexagonal vortex on its northpole (witches evoke Saturn energy through a hexagon). Saturn influences people through the pineal gland which works like a transmitter and receiver. Magnetic fields can remotely influence cell activity (magneto genetics). Orion and Sirius represent the masculine and feminine energy of the energy so masonic rituals like the Declaration of Independence were timed to the aphelion (independent of the sun) of Sirius.

The universe, the solar system and its planets, trees and human mind and body are all one and the same organism, connected through consciousness and are studied as such. The 12 zodiac signs to mark the cycle of the sun are linked to human body. The Tree of life in kabbalism (Saturn worship) is divided into 10 spheres or sepiroth, the planets stand for different planes of existence. Initiates work their way up the tree and learn to work with the different planetary energies.

1 Neptune (Kether=Metatron=Enoch, the Gnostic Pleroma or fullness, the Ain soph, eye of sophia) has an orbit of 164 years, spends 14 years in each sign. While Uranus transforms through disruption, and Pluto through destruction, Neptune transforms through confusion. Neptune is the Roman version of the greek Poseidon, god of the sea with trident, a titan and the brother of Jupiter and Pluto. When Jupiter, Pluto and Neptune defeated their father Saturn they divided the world into three parts. Jupiter took the sky, Neptune the sea, and Pluto the underworld. Neptune’s reputation for having a violent temper was believed to be the cause of earthquakes, and violent storms. Neptune rules Pisces= (=Knight or king of Cups=the fisher king), and exalts in Cancer.
Lord of the Invisible Empire. Neptune is connected to the symbol of the trident, three-pronged fish spear: the cross of matter piercing the crescent of personality and setting it free to manifest at a higher level than personal ego. The cross represents life on Earth and the opposition of the separated will to its evolutionary destiny.
